Good news for Roman Polanski: Whoopi Goldberg says he may be guilty of rape, but it wasn’t rape rape

by editor on September 29, 2009

“I know it wasn’t rape rape. It was something else, but I don’t believe it was rape rape … When we’re talking about what someone did, and what they were charged with, we have to say what it actually was, not what we think it was.”

In related news, we believe Whoopi is a moron, but not moron moron.

The liberal viewpoint. Nobody is at fault. Whoopi has just confirmed what we’ve always suspected about her.

Idiots come in all political persuasions. I am a liberal and am thoroughly disgusted by the Hollyweird support of a sicko fugitive that should have been arrested long ago. I believe the film industry should be boycotted by all the regular folks to whom laws actually apply.

I actually saw her make this idiotic comment today (someone in my house, who shall remain nameless, has a bad habit of turning on The View every so often…a habit which I hope I can break that person of without resorting to water-boarding) and I couldn’t believe that even Whoopi was that stupid. As far as I’m concerned, you have sex with a thirteen year old, there are no details or circumstances; you raped a child and deserve an appropriate punishment. I won’t say what that punishment would be, because there could be children or people with weak stomachs reading this.

So Whoopi would not mind if this happened to her 13-year old granddaughter?

I’m relieved now that I know Woody Allen supports him. Must be that progressive sex education plan liberals are always talking about. It’s just that education education thing….

Whoopi is trailer trash. Nothing more. She has never been able to rise above it and has never wanted to. She loves living in the garbage. She is proud of it. She is one sad person.

I used to like Whoopi but her comments reflect her true Hollywood colors. She is an embarrassment to women-hopefully protectors of children.The child’s mother is also a moron but two wrongs don’t make a right.

Only in a liberal’s twisted, sick mind could the drugging, rape and sodomizing of a 13 year-old girl not really be “rape-rape.” Would Whoopi’s definition of rape be different if this had happened to one of Obama’s daughters? Read more at:

That woman is a MORON moron, no doubt!!! If a grown man so much as touched my daughter, let alone drugged her, raped her, sodomized her, he’d be dead before the cops knocked on his door and I’d happily stand trial for his murder. Sick pervert, and anyone who supports him, and backs him and says “just a little mistake” or some bull crap like that is just as sick and perverted as he is.

Whoopie is disgusting and ignorant. Joy is disgusting and ignorant. Sherri is just plain ignorant. And everyone makes fun of Elizabeth! Hilarious – she’s the only one on their with a brain – right-sided as it may be! If I want to listen to a bunch of drither from a group of rude, stupid ladies, all I have to do is watch The View; if I want to have a nice day and be enlightened, I’ll read the news. Ladies, how does it feel to know that only really stupid people who also don’t have manners are watching and listening to what you have to say?? Does it feel good?

“The liberal viewpoint. Nobody is at fault. Whoopi has just confirmed what we’ve always suspected about her”.

Not entirely true. We have to get to the conditions, the unpleasant environment created in this world by uncaring, ignorant conservates, to get down to what is the root cause of crime and rape, to begin any proper discussion of guilt or innocence. I believe that’s a better summation of the media’s – I’m sorry, ‘Ms Goldberg’s’ opinion.

We could call your ihatethemedia site, the hate that hate produced.

sounds like Rape rape to me-worse, it is perversion with a child, a destruction of innocence that can never be rebuilt. Can’t this guy get it up with a grown woman? And he has to drug the child? CLearly SHE thought it was rape rape. Lets put whoopi in a room with Roman and insist he perform the same acts on her, an adult. Lets see if she considers it rape rape then.
